E-Learning Module: Introduction to Coastal Dataset and Data Extraction

The ECFAS Coastal Dataset is constituted by a database of datasets that are being used in the exposure and vulnerability analysis of coastal areas. The database includes the list of coastal datasets and their respective sources, accompanied by information on their production date, spatial resolution and file format. The purpose of the ECFAS coastal database is to provide all input datasets used in the implementation of the shoreline detection, implementation of coastal flood awareness and impact assessments, and integration into other existing services.
